With the pandemic sweeping the world, practically everything has been put on hold. Even game release dates have been hit as title after title fell by the wayside. Thankfully, things are starting to show some sense of normalcy now as we inch closer and closer to the way things were. One such welcome news tidbit in the gaming world came last month, much to the delight of EverQuest fans. We are, of course, talking about the Claws of Veeshan expansion. Those who had enough foresight to pre-order were treated to a taste of things to come via the expansion’s beta. By now, you may have already seen first-hand a few of the changes. But what exactly can we expect from this latest EverQuest expansion? Let’s find out!
What is the Claws of Veeshan expansion?
The Claws of Veeshan is the 27th expansion for the well-loved MMO. The mere fact that EverQuest was released over two decades ago yet still remains relevant in the hearts and minds of today’s gamers is astonishing and is quite an accomplishment in itself. That fact, of course, owes much to the steady barrage of expansions that have been bequeathed upon it through the years. And with this 27th expansion, EverQuest remains as fresh, fun, and fantastical as ever. The rich lore of EverQuest won’t skip a beat as Claws of Veeshan will be set to continue and further expand upon the stories that unfolded in the notable Torment of Velious.
When did the Claws of Veeshan expansion drop?
The Claws of Veeshan expansion was announced in mid-October. While there still hasn’t been any further word regarding when it will actually drop, it’s worth noting that it’s not new for EverQuest to have expansions late into the year. Besides, good things come to those who have the patience and fortitude to wait. So hold your breath, because it may just be around the corner. One thing’s for sure, the content will be worth the wait. Let’s discuss more on that in the next section.
What changes came with the Claws of Veeshan expansion?
Ah, now for the good stuff. For starters, the Claws of Veeshan expansion will treat long-time fans with a chockful of fresh raids, brand new spells, even more collections to boot. And to whet your appetite even further, it’s set to feature six additional icy zones! If those aren’t enough to titillate the most stoic of EverQuest fans, then we don’t know what will.
Oftentimes, game studios tend to drop expansions that actually have little to no bearing on the MMOs they were intended to infuse life into. Thankfully, that isn’t the case with EverQuest’s Claws of Veeshan expansion. Yes, the game is decades old. Some would even say that it only caters to a niche market. Be that as it may, this latest update hits all the essential targets as it manages to breathe vitality into the game. Though it may have sputtered and floundered through some lean years, it still managed to stay afloat. Whether you’re a longtime fan of EverQuest or if you’re relatively new, you’re sure to enjoy EverQuest thanks to the latest additions to the game. All in all, this expansion entices newcomers while giving old school fans enough reason to keep playing and keep indulging in the magic and mystique of EverQuest’s rich lore.
And that’s basically all we know about EverQuest’s latest expansion—at least so far. Stay tuned for the latest updates because we’re sure to be treated to more in the next couple of weeks.
